Special Issue on Quality Engineering and Management of Software-Intensive Systems
Sprache des Titels:
Rick Rabiser: Guest-Editor Journal of Systems and Software: According to IEEE standards, software-intensive systems are described as "any system where software contributes essential influences to the design, construction, deployment, and evolution of the system as a whole" [IEEE Std 1471:2000] to encompass "individual applications, systems in the traditional sense, subsystems, systems of systems, product lines, product families, whole enterprises, and other aggregations of interest". [IEEE Std 42010:2011]. Examples for software-intensive systems include embedded systems for avionics and automotive applications, large-scale heterogeneous systems, or business applications with special focus on web services. Software quality plays a pivotal role when developing and managing software-intensive systems. Hence, the goal of this special issue is to collect current contributions relating to quality-engineering and management of software-intensive systems.
